Pumpkin picking 2012

Today was pumpkin picking day .. one of my favorite days of the year ! :)

We go to a farm where they charge $60.00 for a car load.. Thats alot of pumpkins in our Suburban ! You can only put them in the back and on the floor not on the seats for the 60.00 .   We ended up with 74 pumpkins, 3 garbage bags of gourds and a bunch of those goose neck gourds..

I actually had all these gourds around my feet on the way home.


No kids were available to come with us , so it was just my husband and I .. we were both a muddy mess by the time we finished !

There  were lots of blue and white pumpkins and we did find 4 of the light peachy pink ones.






here is one of the peachy pink ones.. they have lots of wartiness on them .. so cool !


This white one is HUGE ..I have never seen such a big white one !


Another shot of the great WHITE pumpkin..

Still picking beans and tomatoes from the garden supposed to get in the 30's tonight. Going to cover the tomatoes if frost is expected.

I asked my neighbor for more hydrangeas and she brought me over all of these !
Thanks for stopping by !

I was gone all morning at soccer games, but I was enjoying your instagrams at the pumpking patch, and then at your lovely home!!! I love that you are both in sweatshirts, which is as it should be, when picking pumpkins!!! So fun! 100 degrees and muggy as all get out here. Just awful! Son and husband took off for the lake after games. I am staying home this time for some peace and quiet!
Hugs,
Kris

I love the Halloween look of your blog! The pictures of the pumpkins on your porch sure are getting me in the mood for fall and Halloween! I'm glad I found your blog!

Liz @ Sit With Me In My Garden said...

I missed last weeks party at Fishtail Cottage so I'm going through some of the links! That's an amazing amount of pumpkins and gourds for that kind of money! That big white one is a monster! I don't think I've ever seen a white one that big either! I love those speckled swan neck gourds! I got one too! Your halloween look on the blog is so cute!

Aileen Collins said...

"Now that is what I call a pumkin patch in your own back yard." agreed in full and I LOVE it too! Really like your pumpkin decor in front of your home. :)
